People use various means of communication to get from
one place to another. In the old days people had to travel several days, weeks
and months to get to the place they needed. They either went on foot, by
coaches driven by horses or on horseback or by. boats and ships. Then trams,
cars, buses, planes, underground and other means appeared.
Many people like to travel by air as it is the fastest
way of traveling. A lot of people like to travel by train because they can look
at passing villages, forests and fields thro-ugh windows. Some people like to
travel by car. There they can go as slowly or as fast as they like. They can
stop when and where they want.
People who live in big cities use various means of
communication to get from one place to another. Londoners use the underground
railway. They call it “the tube”. Lon-don's underground is the oldest in the
world. It was opened in 1863. There was one route at that time, four miles
long. Now London's underground has 277 stations and it is 244 miles long.
Londoners use buses. The first bus route was opened in London in 1904 Today
there are hundreds of routes there. The interesting thing is that some of the
routes are the same as many years ago.
London's buses are double-decked buses. Londoners do
not use trams, though London was the first city where trams appeared. And now
it is one of the biggest cities in the world where there are no trams. The last
tram left the streets of London many years ago. Londoners use cars. One can see
a lot of cars in London streets. When Londoners leave the town, they use
trains, ships or planes.
